Industrial Motor Control Book, 6E
This Industrial Motor Control Book, 6E (just published in January '09), written by well-respected author Stephen Herman. 544 pages, 8.5" x 11". The new and updated 6th edition of Industrial Motor Control is the most comprehensive revision of the book since it was published over 20 years ago.
With crucial, up-to-date information on basic relay control systems, programmable logic controllers, and solid state devices commonly found in an industrial setting, this book is a must have. It presents easy-to-follow instructions and the essential information for controlling industrial motors, along with commonly used devices in contemporary industrial settings. Coverage is thorough in scope, successfully bridging the gap between industrial maintenance and instrumentation. Readers will gain a fundamental understanding of the operation of variable frequency drives, solid state relays, and other applications that employ electronic devices.
Review: Exellent study guide for beginner and journeyman. Very competently written text that covers all areas of traditional motor control. The author demonstrates his field knowledge by including typical characteristics of device failure and indications where inspection and possible maintenance would be prudent. Circuits and schematics are shown in standard ladder logic convention and in some instances even shows analogy to digital logic for those who are formerly trained electronics technicians.
